Collett's are a small, independent mountain holiday specialist, who have been operating since 1998. We are looking for sociable, friendly and engaging people with a passion for the outdoors who would like to look after our guests to help them enjoy their time on holiday with us in this spectacular corner of the world.
Most, if not all, members of our previous resort teams have cherished their time with us. This, we believe, is due as much to the friendly working relationships, which develop within the team each year, as it is to the beauty of the areas in which we are based and the potential to enjoy them.
Many of our summer staff come back to work with us in the winter too.
